Dai diritti dei popoli ai diritti della natura. La voce dei tribunali di opinione
From the rights of people to the rights of nature. The voice of the opinion tribunals
The opinion tribunals have been considered an expression of alternative justice in contrast with the current law. Rather, they contribute to fill in the hole of justice determined by an absence of norms or a lack of effectiveness of the existing ones. The Permanent peoples’ tribunal and the International tribunal for the rights of nature are an interesting example of the contribution of the justice from below in defining new legal categories, by answering to collectivities and social actors that move their demands inside and outside the law. The article traces the doctrine developed by them on environmental issues, from the perspective of human and peoples’ rights and the rights of nature.
